Welcome back, Big Richard! Whether it’s shifting a paradigm or dazzling us with virtuosic tunes, this band knows how to have fun.
“Colorado quartet Big Richard plays music that sounds at once traditional and fresh, ramming through decades of male-dominated songwriting with aggression and an urgency to smash the patriarchy. And yet, the veritable supergroup — composed of some of the state’s most accomplished bluegrass and old-time artists — is fundamentally playful,” (The Denver Post).
Indeed, band members have “wry senses of humor to match their boundless talent” (Boulder Weekly).
Big Richard is platinum recording artist Bonnie Sims on mandolin, multi-genre musician Dr. Joy Adams on cello, Hazel Royer on bass and guitar, and Eve Panning on fiddle, and they will be masterfully mashing up genres on the main stage this spring at Strawberry!
